And we've reached the end! Big thanks to Irina again for the open conversations and for being so on top of things on a weekly basis. I'd love to give her the sky... but we know it'll probably work out best if I bake her a cake with lots of whipped cream. Whenever you visit… Continue reading Horimiya with IriMoya – episode 13 — I drink and watch anime
Ever since I gave up on my final essays to catch Heaven’s Feel I. Presage Flower on the big screen and failed because all the seats were booked, I’d been committed to watching the rest of the movies in theatres. I am very lucky that I was able to do so for not only Lost… Continue reading [Spoiler-free] Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel III. Spring Song Review
We did it! After 2 years 2 months and roughly 2 weeks, NegativePrimes and I FINISHED REVIEWING TORADORA! Sorry for the all caps, I couldn't restrain myself. 🥂 Primes: You bring the caps, I'll bring the emojis. For those who didn't start following the project from the beginning (which is probably all of you reading… Continue reading Anime x Lit Crit: Toradora! 25 (Finale)
It's been forever since I've done a "10 Best Things" post, and I'm not exactly writing one now because Tower of God was more outstanding than anything else I've seen recently, but just because I've remembered how much low-effort fun this kind of post is. You will find that this list consists of oddly specific items,… Continue reading 10 Best Things: Tower of God
Belated final thoughts on last season's hype. Who's who: Purple = Aria the 14th Magic Conan Green = Plyasm of the Wormhole Blue = Astral the Gemini Red = Moya the Tori 1. What are your general thoughts on this episode? [Mandatory] More train hype. Loved the first half and didn’t mind the second either. A very good episode, and a fitting endpoint for the… Continue reading Demon Sayer Corps: Kimetsu no Yaiba 26 – Off the Training, Onto the Train
I know, it's only the end of the season and not the entire series, but man, this has gotta be one of the weakest episodes in the anime. Not even that many screenshots this time. It's mostly Kai playing piano, and the animation, though without major blunders, is fairly lackluster. Be yourself, Kai, be yourself.… Continue reading [Highlights] Piano no Mori 12 (End): That’s It?
A decent end to the series. I was glad they got through the awkward battle bit as quickly as they did - Violet Evergarden is a show more about letters and reconciliation than action after all. Dietfried catches Violet's brooch before it flies off somewhere. This was the moment Dietfried redeemed himself for me. Seriously, this dude.… Continue reading [Highlights] Violet Evergarden 13 (Finale): A Doll’s Will
The end of the journey was quite satisfying. I was expecting some escapist's fantasy when I put Yorimoi on my watch list, but what I got was the entire opposite. The journey has ended, but the feels will carry on! Wow, thousand-year-old air. I don't get how the anime strives to be realistic in every aspect about… Continue reading [Highlights] Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho 13: To Strive, to Seek, to Find
